Preparing Ceremonial Raw Cacao
For a ceremonial drink, please add 1 oz of cacao to 4 ounces of water and cook until well blended. We suggest a small amount of honey. Use it during ceremony, meditation or your yoga practice to connect to your heart. You can also use this cacao for hot drinking chocolate, smoothies, or making your own sugar free or keto friendly chocolate.
The Arhuaca tribe fair trade
Ceremonial Cacao from Origen Cacao is sourced directly from the Arhuaca tribe of the Sierra Nevada in Colombia. This cacao is grown organically on ancestral land, the way it has been done for centuries. It is grown alongside other medicinal plants, and infused with the Arhuaca tribal. The Arhuaca believe that they can share the knowledge and teachings of their ancestors through their crops, that you, while drinking this cacao, can tap into their history and their “pensamientos”.
Cacao with pure intentions. After the cacao pods are hand harvested, the beans are then fermented according to their tradition. This fermentation starts a transformational process in the beans that helps to develop the rich and complex chocolatey flavor. When the fermentation is complete the beans are sun dried. The cacao is then sent to our factory and farm near Medellin where it is hand sorted, and prepared for you. Please note, this is 100% pure cacao and contains no sugar. It may be bitter.
